FA Cup logoOne of the most eagerly anticipated live football draws takes place just after seven o’clock tonight as BBC2 screens the FA Cup third round draw.

Few programmes are as enjoyed as much as the first opportunity for “minnows” to be drawn against the giants of the domestic game.

Exeter City and Forest Green – ball number 62 – produced a thrilling second round tie to draw 3-3 at the New Lawn.
